, indeed, the government of i said i can't is very concerned about the fiscal deficit situation and the finance minister unveiling the consolidation plan, something that hasn't gone on particularly well with the markets because they're not willing to believe the fiscal map. let's talk about what the government intendses to close fy 13 with. the budgeted number 5.1, saying there will be a slippage, but they hope to contain to 5.3%. most estimates peg the fiscal deficit numberner from 5.7 to 5.9%. but as i said, the finance minister coming out all guns blazing and saying it cannot be a business as usual promise. the tough decidings will need to be taken. they are talking about the decisions on the taxation front. they hope to divest the government's share holding. the spectrum sale should give them another strengthening rupee will bring down their import subsidy especially as far as oil sub s citydyes are concerninged. so the government at this point in time is clear, they're also sending out a message to the reserve bank of india. it announces its mop taker poli policy, they feel
and the senate leans more republican. we're more likely to get a grand bargain on deficit reduction because the president will be more likely to make a deal for 2014 and 2016. they can't spend the next four years not doing anything about the deficit. we could see a deal to reduce the budget deficit and that would be a net positive for all the financial markets if that happens. but if the republicans were to run the table, you would see a pretty big rally on wall street. >> if president obama stays in office, do you think we'll take another peek at the american jobs act? >> i certainly think that's something the president is going to bring to the table. and perhaps that could be part of a bargain around the debt ceiling. one thing we've heard a lot of talk about, not so much from the white house although they've suggested they're open to it, is some sort of extension not to the payroll tax cut, but something like that. and, actually, just from the economics -- >> which is the only thing that republicans liked over the sum from the american jobs act. >> that's a good point. that's a correct p
. on the other hand, we all spent so much time worrying about the deficit, so much time worrying about the long-term fiscal situation of the country and the fact is the fiscal cliff solves our deficit problem. it does come with something of silver lining. that if congress does nothing, our whole deficit problem isn't solved because we have to deal with medicare and rise of health costs over the next 20 or 30 years but medium term deficit problem is solved by the fiscal cliff with the increase in taxes and automatic decline in spendispen spending it disappears. for once, if congress does nothing, it will make major progress on the deficit. >> thanks so much. david, thanks for standing by and being with us. >> thank you. >> up next, marathon madness. the race goes on despite mounting controversy. and this weekend, we're turning rockefeller plaza into democracy plaza, broadcasting there this sunday. a special edition of "andrea mitchell reports" at a special time, 3:00 eastern only right here on msnbc. what if there was a new way to deal with money that focused less on fees and more... on what mat

first order of business is going to be to get our deficits and debt under control. and the good thing is is that there's a forcing mechanism. the bush tax cuts end at the end of the year. we know that we've got the sequester looming that's taking a machete to something as opposed to a scalpel. and after the election, i think that both democrats and republicans have to step back and say, you know what? this is something that the country wants to solve. if i've won, then i believe that's a mandate for doing it in a balanced way. we've already made a tril dolli dollars worth of cuts. we can make cuts. look at how to deal with health care cots under medicare and medicare in a speeerious way, b we're going to also need revenue. we kind of settle on the big question, how much government are we going to have, and how are we going to pay for it, then a lot of the other stuff falls into place. >> can you get medicare done? >> i think we can. >> because republicans demagogue it. democrats demagogue it. everybody's demagogued it through the years. can you go to the republicans and say, guys, we'
, asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little bit more. so we could reduce our deficit and invest in the skills and ideas of our people. and you know, at the time the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney vote -- they said that bill clinton's plan would hurt the economy and kill jobs. does that sound familiar? that's what they said. it turns out their math was just as bad back then as it is now. because -- because by the end of bill clinton's second term, america had created 23 million new jobs and a incomes were up and poverty was down, and our deficit had turned into a surplus. so wisconsin, we know what ideas work. we know our ideas work. and we know that their ideas don't work. we know it. and the reason we know it is we just tried it a few years ago. after bill clinton was out of office, they tried their ideas. we tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free rein to do whatever they play. what we got is falling incomes, record deficits, slowest job growth in 50 years and an ec
are ready for a change. big word obama used last time. he was going to cut the deficit in half, increase jobs, we have a little bit of job growth. i don't always credit washington for that. i do credit the states and localities for that. but certainly the deficit's getting out of control and i think people are worried about their future generations being strapped with that. surely governor romney's been in ohio probably just as much as the president. they're hitting us quite a bit. people had a chance to listen what he had to say and trust in it. >> mayor coleman, you're mayor of columbus, ohio. the biggest city. how is the economy? it's coming down in this election to not only the future for other generations but also the economic picture in specific areas of the country. how is the economy in columbus right now? >> the economy in columbus is vastly improving. in fact, we're leading the way for the rest of the state. our unemployment rate is 5.7%. still, we have much more to go. we're the lowest unemployment rate in the entire state. frankly, it is the work of the locality, it is the wo

a little more, so we could reduce the deficit and still make investments in things like education, train, science, research. and guess what? plenty of folks running for congress at the time said it would hurt the economy. that it would kill jobs. and if that argument sounds familiar, one of those candidates back then happens to be running for president right now. and it turns out, their math was just as bad back then as it is today because, by the end of bill clin totoclinton's turn am created 23 million jobs. the biggest surplus in our history. wisconsin we know the ideas that work. we also know the ideas that don't work. because in the eight years after bill clinton left office his policies were reversed. the wealthiest americans got tax cuts they didn't need, and that we couldn't afford. companies enjoyed tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas, insurance companies, oil companies, wall street given free license do what they pleased. folks, at the top got to play by a different set of rules than the rest of us. and result of this top-down economics was falling incomes, record deficits, s

[ cheers and applause ] [ chanting ] you know, we're going to have to come up with a better slogan tomorrow, or a different one at least. i know the president's been trying to figure out some way to suggest he's got some new ideas. because with all these people out of work, with 3 million more women in poverty today than when he took officer, with 15 million more people on food stamps than when he took office, he's got to find something to suggest it's going to be better over the next four years. so he came up with an idea last week which is he's going to create the department of business. i don't think adding a new chair in his cabinet will help add millions of jobs on main street.
